Community invited to Tuesday’s ribbon cutting for SMART Lab

An expanded curriculum with 11 new courses is planned for the 2017-18 school year at Homewood-Flossmoor High School.

Nancy Spaniak, H-F director of Curriculum, Instruction & Professional Development, said the changes will help students reach new goals while strengthening the curriculum.

Several courses will help students move ahead in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), four are in preparation for H-F’s new Media, Visual Arts and Performing Arts (MVP) Academy, and others will make changes to PE, social science and foreign language offerings, she told board members before they agreed . . .
